The Louisiana Home Energy Rebate Option (HERO) offers a cash rebate payment to Louisiana residents who make an energy efficiency improvement of 30% or more to an existing home. HERO is a component of the Energy Loan Program of the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources. The maximum rebate amount in HERO’s current form is $2000, which is taxable. The rebate amount is contingent on how much money you spend completing the retrofit. In order to receive the full rebate amount a homeowner must spend around $10,000 total on things that improve the energy efficiency of their home. To participate in the HERO program, you must be a resident of the state of Louisiana, and the existing home must also be in Louisiana. Only single family or duplex properties are eligible for participation in the HERO program.
